the religions of the past had promised, he was banished again to what was constantinople, now istanbul. he was banished still further to other places in a further attempt by the government and the clergy to eliminate the followers of bahÁ'u'llah. since his faith was growing very rapidly there was considerable concern that it was recruiting too many people and was growing too rapidly and gaining too much power. and their desire was to stamp it out. in that part of the middle east, the bahai faith was viewed as a heresy, because it came after islam. it is unfortunately often said that the bahai faith is a sect of islam. that could only be said if christianity were to be called a sect of judaism. since the bahai faith came from islam in much the same way that christianity came from judaism. so that's the derivation of the bahai faith. but the faith then spread then rapidly throughout the world. bahÁ'u'llah was eventually exiled to the prison city of acre in palestine, which is now the city of acre in israel. after many years in prison he was allowed to live in various houses outside the pri

millions of dollarses worth of gold in theie luggage flying from istanbul tot dubai where the gold is shipped to iran. what do you think? does this sound plausible? what does that mean? >> oh, absolutely.y. i'm glad you're covering thisd because, you know, it's the untold way of bypassing the sanctions against iran which have been somewhat effective. i mean, we saw it drop 30%, inflation up 50% as iraniansoing citizens are concerned about tha value of their own monetary values so at the end of the dayt what's happening is they, forey example, turkey is shipping gold. iran is selling its oil, and turkey's paying for it through it, but then they convert it to gold. iran gets paid in gold and uses that gold to buy other productss around the world, and they continue to function in an economy with china, india, south korea, and other countries nothr buying into the sanctions, and, thus, they continue to create app economy frustrate sanctions. talk about this, expose it, impose harder sanctions on iran. melissa: what is it we can do about this? >> well, you know, i think it'st more compl

in istanbul. >> there is a feeling on the part of the public especially that the northeastern parts of syria that is heavily populated by kurds obtained a kind of de facto autonomy. it has led to the turkish public to believe that there is a threat emanating from this particular area. >> warner: one of the syrian areas taken over by the kurds: the city of kamishli, just across from its former half in turkey, nusaybin. millions of turkey's kurds have assimilated into turkish life, but not in southeastern enclaves like here in nusaybin. and the fact that kurds in syria are now in partial control of the city of kamishli just across the border stirs yearnings for similar liberties among kurds here. nusaybin is almost entirely kurdish. a kurdish language newspaper is sold openly, and the turkish papers feature news about the jailed leader of the p.k.k., abdullah ocalan. but many kurds told us they feel marginalized. >> we have no life. we are having a hard time here. we are kurds, and turks and arabs don't accept us here. >> warner: kurds complained bitterly about the turkish government closing t

to their neighbor turkey. >> reporter: istanbul's grand bazaar, for centuries it's been a center for international trade. a place to buy carpets and jewels, silks and spices. in modern times turkey's exports have been dominated by cars shipped primarily to europe. but that changed last april when suddenly gold became turkey's number one export. that's strange because turkey is not a gold producing country. even stranger, the destination for billions of dollars worth of gold became turkey's neighbor to the east, iran. iran has basically been cut off from international electronic banking forcing it to adopt older forms of international trade. a senior turkish government official says iran has effectively been bartering oil and gas for billions of dollars worth of gold from turkey. this month deputy prime minister alba baa became the first official to confirm that the spike in turkey's gold exports was linked to a gas for gold trade aimed at avoiding u.s. sanctions against iran. >> turkey is the big hole, the big gap in the wall of sanctions. >> reporter: the announcement put to rest questions some e
